These spring bars should each have a portion thicker than a remainder than the spring bar so as to increase a range of sizes of the device may be accommodated by the clip. The thicker portions should interact with a top surface of the device to force the spring bars to provide a counter pressure to the device and secure it to the structure. Legs depending from the clip body may feature cut-outs to interface securely with the underlying wire structure. Said cut-out may be made to accommodate different sizes of wire.

  • Patent number: 9931966
    Abstract: A device for rapid removal/reinstallation of a back of a seat of a vehicle, the back being attached, by at least one first strap, to a ceiling. The device includes a hanging intermediary structure and a fixed structure integral with the ceiling and retaining the structure in the use position of the seat, in which it has been brought with an upward movement, and locking the structure in the use position or unlocking it such that it is moved away from the ceiling to release the tension exerted by the first strap and allow the structure to be disengaged from the retaining unit. The back can thus be removed or reinstalled without any action on the tension setting of the strap.

  • Patent number: 9702502
    Abstract: A bird feeder that mounts to tension rods that run horizontally just outside the window, in which the bird feeder has a pivotable lid that can be opened from inside the building to allow the user to add bird seed into the seed-holding tray portion of the main body of the feeder. The tension rods can be mounted to the sides of the window framework, or other structure that is proximal to the window framework, also with the user remaining inside the building structure, thereby allowing the user to do everything from inside the building. The pivotable lid has a pivot point that is closer to the “front” of the feeder, which is where the bird perch is located, and which is the distal portion of the feeder, with respect to the window or building where the feeder is mounted.

  • Patent number: 9579155
    Abstract: A boxed glove dispenser has a front and an opposite back, two spaced apart ends connecting the front and the back, a top connecting the front, back, and ends, and a bottom opposite the top. The bottom has a lesser depth than the top and connects to the front and the back using two rails. The rails provide two edges parallel to the length of the dispenser and elevate a box placed upon the rails slightly above the bottom. The bottom also has a grate centered in it. The grate has a transverse orientation to the length of the bottom. The grate operates as an opening into the dispenser, yet the opening limits a medical provider's access within the dispenser to no more than two fingers while promoting single glove retrieval from any glove box placed within the dispenser.
